Program Content

While the first week's courses will focus on improving your interpersonal and leadership skills, it is during the second week that you will study one of the 3 specialized tracks:

• Design & Innovation
• Law & International Relations
• Business & Technology

The academic program will be complimented by different extracurricular activities and team-building events that will allow you to enjoy the vibrant cities of Madrid and Segovia. Please see below the complete program agenda.

Many companies are employing designers to tackle branding, strategic planning, and user-experience design. Do you want to discover why design matters more than ever? Come and explore the Design & Innovation track with an open mind and be ready to "roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty". Design is challenging, fun, necessary, creative, involves a lot of practice (and sometimes failure) and is enormously satisfying.

Are you interested in training you in critical areas such as conflict resolution, negotiation and strategy? Obtain a comprehensive look at International Relations as a global discipline, and look into fields such as Geopolitics, Foreign Policy and International Institutions. The track in Law & International Relations will let you unravel complexity by applying analytical reasoning and provide solutions for real world issues.

Are you are an innovative thinker who is passionate about technology and entrepreneurship? Technology is a powerful force that drives products and services, operations, and economic growth. Enriched with an entrepreneurial mindset it can also be harnessed to improve peoples’ lives and contribute to social change. The track in Business & Technology offers you resources and flexibility to turn your ideas into reality and jump-start your business journey!

This track is closed. There are still places available in the other two tracks.
